Where will your dog go in the event of an emergency?
It’s not something anyone likes to think about, but it’s important to have a plan for how your pets will be cared for if you’re suddenly unable to do it yourself. Unplanned work trips, lengthy hospital stays, or relatives with severe allergies that need temporary lodging on your couch – these scenarios happen to regular people every day. If your dog is up to date on shots and healthy, our Burbank dog daycare is open 7 days a week and we have boarding facilities available.
While you’re away, having a trustworthy friend, relative, or neighbor that can take care of your pets is a very common and reasonable solution. Your dog has probably already met them and feels comfortable staying at their place. If that’s not an option for you, bringing them to a kennel or a vet clinic is the best alternative. For the circumstances to pass smoothly, we highly recommend verifying that your dog’s rabies vaccine and license are current.
The first rabies vaccine in a dog’s life should take place at 3 to 5 months old, and then another one year later. After those first two, a booster shot is needed every three years. You’ll need proof of your last rabies shot to get a license or to have the license renewed.
It’s important to stay on top of the license and vaccines in case you need to leave your dog at a boarding kennel, a vet’s office, or even a friend’s. Occasionally dogs will manage to escape from unfamiliar buildings or fenced yards, and if that happens, they need to have a collar with their identification. Fines can be issued for a dog that’s found without a license or proof of rabies vaccination, so for peace of mind, double-check your license and vaccine records today.
